  • Leadership
  • Collaboration
  • Facilitation
  • Advocacy
  • Identifying (and overcoming) barriers
  • Putting data into context
  • Understanding school accountability

Those are just some of the topics we cover. At Community & Parents for Public Schools of Seattle we give parents the tools and training to fully engage with schools and the district. We offer two-hour, one-day, and two-day options, covering the full spectrum of parent engagement. We contract with schools and community groups and tailor to their specific needs.

For dates or to arrange training, please contact us at contact@cppsofseattle.org

OUR BASIC PREMISE: If you are confidant and comfortable, you can better support your child and contribute to school success.

OUR UNDERLYING BELIEF: Every parent has expertise to share, and your insight helps ensure our public schools meet the diverse needs of all our children.

‘But parents won’t come’ is a common cry from schools and administrators.  We work with schools and communities to understand how to reach parents.  There is no magic to increasing parental involvement, but there are activities and processes that improve recruiting results.”
